I was born in Atlanta, GA. in October, 1972. My parents named me "Talon" much to the dismay of my more conservative relatives, who thought I should have been a William or a Robert or something like that. Anyway, I moved to Miami, FL. in 1981. I graduated from Chaminade-Madonna College Preparatory, a private, catholic high-school (not a singing school), ten years later, after which I attended Auburn University in Auburn, AL. There I studied graphic art, painting, drawing, printmaking and sculpture. I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art in 1997 (I lost two years when I changed my major from graphic to fine art) at which point I moved back to Atlanta to pursue a "career" in freelance illustration and graphic design.
Exciting stuff, eh?
On a more personal level, I'm Caucasian (Scotish/Irish/German decent), 6'1", 180 lbs with brown hair and eyes. My hobbies include roleplaying games, comic books, movies, television, sci-fi/fantasy novels, classic rock and just about anything else that's entertaining. I love to be entertained. I have a strong interest in the arts, be they visual or performing and generally have a good time no matter what I'm doing. I'm a real happy-go-lucky kind of guy. I don't lead a very stressful life and tend to be really laid-back and relaxed all the time. I've been told I'm nice to a fault. I've yet to figure out how being a nice guy is a fault, though.
I'm single (and available, ladies!) and live alone with a smoky gray cat named Smog, two turtles and two aquariums full of tropical fish.
